To Prepare For Administration
Immediately before connecting the infusion set, firmly grasp the BLUE infusion port cap with the arrow pointing away from the bag between index finger and thumb. Gently break off the port cap.

Close the roller clamp of the infusion set.
Hold the base of the BLUE infusion port and insert the spike by rotating your wrist slightly until the spike is fully inserted.
he port membrane contains a self-sealing septum that helps prevent leakage after removing the spike. The infusion port is not intended to be spiked more than once.
Hang from the hole at the top of the bag.
